When I Am Dead, Cry For Me A Little

#

When I am dead,

Cry for me a little,

Think of me sometimes

But not too much.

 

Think of me now and again

As I was in life at some moment

That is pleasant to recall -

But not too long.

 

Leave me in peace

And I shall leave you in peace.

And whilst you live

Let your thoughts be with the living.

 

(Indian Prayer)
